Who am I?
I'm Markus Nissl, a PhD Student at the Knowledge Graph Lab
As a PhD student supervised by Emanuel Sallinger, my mission is to bring efficient, highly scalable temporal reasoning to Knowledge Graphs and in particular into the Vadalog system. This line of research includes symbolic (e.g., logic, rules, etc.) as well as sub-symbolic methods (e.g., machine learning, embeddings, graph neural networks, etc.). In addition, I am working on Blockchain-based Knowledge Graphs in various domains such as analytics, smart contract design or data structures.
Topics on which I am (or have been) working on and for which I am looking for collaborators or students interested in working on their project or thesis in this area.
The heart of my research. Connecting the other lines of research domains.
Working on scalable solutions for answering queries over temporal data.
Connecting individual blockchain solutions to a coherent system.
Studying the economic impact of Covid-19.
Designing logic-based Smart Contract languages.
I am always open for new topics and ideas. Contact me.
